Cosmopolitan Virtual Makeover is the most exciting new way to experiment with your own look! It's easy to use. One click and you're a blonde, a redhead, or a brunette. Feeling adventurous? Then change your hairstyle or reshape your lips and brows. Even change the color of your eyes--and much more!

Review

Grab the gals and the virtual curlers for hours of makeover fun. The only problem? You'll be spending much of that time waiting for the disc to catch up.

With this disc, finding a new you isn't the gamble it used to be. Just scan your picture (or have the local photo hut put it on a disc), and let the revelry begin. Choose from 150 hair styles and the whole family of skin paints: lipstick, lip liner, blush, eyeshadow, cover-up, and eyebrow shaper. Add different colored contact lenses, to boot. Men: You can bring your blow-dryer, too - there are male hair types as well.

But cleaning up your mug on the computer could put wrinkles on your real face. Long, long loading times leave you fearing the computer has crashed. (Sometimes, it has.) And a mediocre navigation system will likely take the perkiness out of any future blond.

The Last Words:

Mark: It's lots of fun in a paper cut-out doll kinda way. But I have to knock it down a notch for instability and poor responsiveness. It could be a fun diversion if they'd only fix the thing.

Judy: It left me wondering whether the system had crashed or was simply taking its sweet time. When it became clear it was bombing, no amount of cover-up could make me feel better.

Joe: It's a nifty idea that's long overdue. Unfortunately, the waits aren't. And the way-too-obvious plugs for Cover Girl left me with a not-so-fresh feeling.

Rating:2/4

It's a wonderful CD Rom! I love giving myself new looks without taking the risks. It's so funny to see the creative hairstyles, like Frankenstein or a mohawk. It's perfect for if you want a certain haircut because you can just print out the one you want!

This game is okay if you like to play around with looks. It'd be better if you had more makeup choices, or other brands. The hairstyle choices are wide ranged but some hairstyles are hideous! If you are buying this game to make-over yourself be sure to have a digital camera of some sort or it won't be much fun. The other versions of the game are pretty good to as well because you can do more, but this game sells pretty cheap so if you are looking for a simple makeover then try out this orginal makeover game!

My sister and I bought this software, mostly for fun, but also to try out new looks. It was pretty easy to set up and use. As for complaints that it moved slowly, we didn't find that to be the case at all. The hardest part was getting the picture of my face lined up just right. Other than that, the Cosmopolitan Makeover software has been a success. I highly recommend it. Besides trying out hairstyles, it's just fun to mess with pictures of your family.

So it wasn't perfect, but it was sooo much fun. We did not use it for makeovers. We used it to give beehives to my husband. And afro's to my toddler (we're white...). It was actually pretty easy to use. Get the hair off of your face and stand against a white background and get your base picture (use plenty of flash).

Using it for makeovers would not have been easy, I suspect. That's why we wound up just goofing off with it. But it was worth it for that!

Used this on my old PowerMac G4. Don't think it works on Intel Macs. There might be a newer version for Intel processors. We used it to play around with silly effects for ourselves or others, not make-overs. Fun toy!
